Second Dose of Pfizer on 9/23/21 Lot #EW0161
Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
I had no preexisting conditions prior to the vaccine. I'm was a healthy, fit individual. I worked out daily. I'm a nurse and was thriving at my job.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
Four days after second dose, I started to have heart palpitations and "winded" feeling in chest. It was like I was having panic attacks for no reason. I also had sudden insomnia. I felt like I had no shut off switch. I was hyper alert even though my body was physically tired. I could not sleep for days. Then two weeks later came on the numbness and tingling in arms and hands, and then feet and legs. Headaches and tingling sensation from head down to spine. Internal vibrations and "jolting" feeling when I'm trying to fall asleep that wakes me up and scares the F out of me. Also, brain fog and light-headed/dizzy. Mild tinnitus in both ears. And I feel confused and slow. Hot showers make all these symptoms worse for some reason. I am someone that is usually always cold but now I'm always hot. I now dislike hot showers. The panic attacks continue. All symptoms continue. I haven't been able to work because I keep having panic attacks at work. I'm a nurse so that's a no go. Some days at home are better than others. I'm still trying to figure out wtf is wrong with me. Doctors have been no help. Thank God I don't have kids. We need to come together and fight this. We need answers. We need help. We need to put something into action. This needs to come to light. The world needs to know what happened to us. There needs to be accountability.
Q: What was your life like after you got the vaccine?
I am no longer able to work as a nurse. I feel depressed and hopeless. I feel like my body has been "hijacked" by something. I feel betrayed. I feel abandoned.
Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:
The doctors are not helpful. They all say I'm just having anxiety.
Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?
I reported my reaction to the local ER twice, my General Doctor, and Cardiologist. The doctors are not helpful. They all say I'm just having anxiety.
Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?
Yes, cutting out fats and junk food has helped. Eating a mostly whole foods plant-based diet has helped a lot. No alcohol, caffeine or processed sugar and fats. Also, juicing raw Turmeric and Ginger root to decrease inflammation inside my body has seemed to help. Breathing exercises and yoga have helped. Going to the gym and getting my blood flowing has helped.
Q: What do you wish others knew?
Going on an anti-inflammatory diet like a plant-based diet with lots of fruits and vegetables can help a lot. Cutting out processed sugar and fats helps a lot. Don't drink alcohol or consume caffeine. Include Tumeric and Ginger root in your diet. Temporarily going raw vegan can really help decrease the symptoms.
